Mary Queen of Peace Catholic School is a MNSAA accredited school.

The Minnesota Nonpublic School Accrediting Association (MNSAA) has renewed the accreditation for Mary Queen of Peace Catholic School for the eligibility period of 2018 through 2025.

Schools are accredited based on their compliance with a set of rigorous standards which identify essential personnel, instruction, facility, curriculum, governance, and marketing policies and practices that are considered necessary for an effective school. The accreditation process includes the creation of a visionary and focused strategic plan and an onsite visit by a team of educators from member schools. Accreditation with MNSAA relies heavily on how the individual school defines its mission and the way it seeks to accomplish that mission.

We at Mary Queen of Peace Catholic School are pleased to join the more than 170 accredited schools that make up the Association.

The mission of the Minnesota Nonpublic School Accrediting Association (MNSAA) is to be a catalyst for enhancing the quality of K-12 nonpublic education in Minnesota through a comprehensive accreditation process.

MNSAA fulfills its mission by:

  • Establishing high standards of quality and excellence for the learning process
  • Facilitating the continuous improvement of member schools
  • Monitoring accountability of member schools
  • Providing education and training opportunities
  • Developing partnerships with public and private organizations
  • Requiring an extensive self-evaluation and visionary strategic plan for improvement.

Accreditation is a framework for the best possible educational program for learners. In addition to delivering recognized credibility of the quality of a school program in the eyes of stakeholders and the public, accreditation also offers outside objective validation that a school has met high standards and is actively seeking a quality educational program.

MNSAA salutes Mary Queen of Peace Catholic School’s commitment to providing outstanding education to the children of this community. MNSAA will continue to provide guidance to Mary Queen of Peace through an annual review of its strategic plan.
